Candidates that have Earned Crediblity
Twelve Veterans from the Iraq war will be running for Congress as Republican candidates.
Scott Radcliffe (pictured above) believes two tours of duty in Iraq gave him the stuff to serve in Congress. As a platoon commander, he helped spearhead economic development, built citizen coalitions and made many tough decisions, often amid enemy fire.
"I would be putting all I learned in that pressure-filled environment into practice. So it really cuts through metal," said Radcliffe, 28, who seeks to unseat a newly elected Republican in northwest Ohio.
OYE Comment: OYE warmly welcomes the men of Iraq Veterans for Congress. Unlike their Republican counterparts Matthew Continetti and Jason Mattera they have earned credibility for their beliefs by serving Our Country in uniform.
